''Do you ever wonder if you've lived the life you were meant to?' I ask her. She sighs, and dips her head. 'Even if I do, what difference will it make?'

In 1988, two eight-year-old girls with almost identical names and the same love of ballet meet for the first time. They seem destined to be best friends forever and to become professional dancers.

Years later, however, they have both been dealt so many cruel blows that they walk away from each other into very different futures - one enters a convent, the other becomes a minor celebrity. Will these new, 'invisible' lives be the ones they were meant to live, or will they only find that kind of salvation when they are reunited twenty years later?

MEDIA REVIEWS
A real page-turner. * Good Housekeeping *
Powerful and haunting, the book tackles difficult topics and makes you realise how easily you can lose your whole world * Woman *
A powerful story about friendship and forgiveness, and fans of Dorothy Koomson will enjoy the clever twists and unexpected turns, which keep the reader enthralled and eager to discover just what happened to two little girls destined for greatness. * Candis *
Gritty and emotional, with lots of satisfying twists and turns. A compulsively readable book about empowering women. I couldn't put it down; I think this is one of her best. -- Julie Cohen
A thought-provoking and suspense-filled tale of friendship. * OK! *

“When I Was Invisible”

This is another great book by Dorothy Koomson - but it's not an easy read.

To begin with, the way it's structured. There are two narrators, both called Veronica Harper! As if that's not confusing... More
